    Default common mistakes

    Ive seen films and interviews where natives make mistakes like English is more easy than Spanish . Can anybody come up with common mistakes made in conversation even by cultured natives? Either conscious ou unconsciously?

    The double negative has confused people out there:

    I have no money!
    Eu no tenho nenhum dinheiro!

    Double negative - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
